Argentina recorded an immediate response to their defeat to England by teaching Romania a rugby lesson in a 43-8 win in Invercargill on Saturday.
The Pumas were full value for their win in a one-sided Pool B encounter that saw seven tries being scored - six of them to Argentina.
There was also am improved showing with the boot as centre Martin Rodriguez, who was guilty of missing too many efforts in the 13-9 loss to England, was more accurate this time as he added 13 points from the kicking tee.
